Covid 19 updates – businesses at The Mill Castlemaine are following Victorian State government directives and from Friday 10 September 2021 we welcome back regional Victorians who aren’t subject to State Government lockdown directives.
Food and beverage businesses are subject to number restrictions for dine-in so may be open for TAKE AWAY service only. Check individual business hours below – shown in orange at the bottom of the business listing.

As things change VERY rapidly, the most current information will be on Facebook and Instagram, on individual business pages and The Mill Castlemaine pages.

QR code check-ins are required on entry to individual businesses. Proof of residence checks will also be taking place, so please be patient with business operators who are doing their best to keep our community safe.
Masks are required to be worn indoors and outdoors by people over 12 years of age, unless you have an exemption.
